Isla nodded in agreement, so Damian continued, "That's exactly what I feel about Sheryl. The first time I saw her, I knew she was special. And as we became closer, I started falling for her."

Isla was moved by his words. She had never realized that Damian already loved Sheryl. Actually, she hadn't expected him to like Sheryl from the very beginning. The whole thing was a lot to take in.

At that moment, Isla wished that Sheryl would change her mind about Damian. Seeing his intentions, she just knew that he would treat her right.

But Sheryl was too stubborn to listen to any of them.

'I guess Sheryl would never love you back, ' Isla thought sadly, shaking her head.

Receiving no response, Damian had thought that Isla didn't believe him either. He sighed before continuing, "Ms. Zhao, I know this is sudden, but do you mind if I ask a favor from you?"

"A favor? For what?" Isla asked in surprise.

"Look, I didn't intend to eavesdrop." He raised his hands up to emphasize his innocence. "But I heard your conversation with Sheryl just now. I think Sheryl is feeling confused now, and I would give her more space and time to think about it, but..."

"But what?" Damian hesitated.

"I just want to know why Sheryl wanted the divorce. When she was talking to you, I could tell that her feelings...that Charles– She still has feelings for Charles." His voice broke at the end of his speech as if saying those words brought a knife to his heart. As much as he wanted to ignore it, he knew it was true.

Isla blinked at the unexpected question. Though they didn't talk much, nor were they close from the beginning, she couldn't help but feel at ease with Damian. He seemed like the kind of man who would give Sheryl the life that she truly deserved.

Since Charles was the one that caused the breakup in the first place, Isla had no qualms in telling Damian what had truly happened between them.

Even if Sheryl were to find out, she honestly didn't care.

In fact, if this worked out, she mi

t. The moment you two got into the hotel, a bunch of journalists broke into the hotel the very next second. It is obvious that someone is behind all this. You two were framed," Isla shared her thoughts with Damian.

Damian smiled at Isla gratefully, saying, "Thank God, you believed me. But Sheryl…"

"Don't worry. I'll handle that."

"That's such a relief, Ms. Zhao..."

"Still calling me Ms. Zhao?" Isla teased, raising her eyebrows.

Damian recovered. "Right, um... Isla, is it okay if I call you that?"

"As long as you treat her right, you can call me whatever you want." She winked.

Damian grinned back.

"That's definitely a mission."

Isla and Damian shared a look. At the same time, Sheryl, who had stayed in her ward, felt something cold run down her spine. Her nose itched, and she sneezed.

"Sher, did you catch a cold?" Cassie was giving Sheryl a check-up at the time. She peered over at her, raising her eyebrows.

Sheryl shook her head. "No, it's just…my nose itched." Somehow, Sheryl felt that something was wrong as if people were talking behind her back. She didn't tell Cassie this, afraid that she would be thinking too much.

Cassie snorted in laughter. "Sher, there's a saying in my town that if you sneeze, someone's missing you," she sang out. "Are you seeing someone that I don't know lately?"
